In two days, two organizers gave this vacation home new life.  On a recent project we performed a 24 hour organizing blitz through a four bedroom vacation retreat.

Clothes in the master closet were sorted, hung on uniform hangers, and shoulder covers were added to coats.  This protects the shoulders from dust while making it easy to see the garments.

In the pantry, the room was emptied and we started from scratch.  Checking dates and discarding items no longer used.  Cleaning supplies were moved to the garage making more room for food storage.  Clear air tight containers dressed up the space while helping to keep foods fresh.  
 
Guest suite baths were enhanced with acrylic drawer inserts.  Travel items were stocked giving a welcoming treat for visitors to enjoy.  Wicker type container were added under the vanities for paper supplies.
 
  
On your next vacation or weekend get away, think of the extra time you will have when your home has everything in place.

Since organizing my first closet, I have always encouraged using uniform hangers.    Using the same style of hanger allows your wardrobe to hang at the same height.  Once clothes are sorted by “like with like” it is much easier to find the outfit you need each morning. 

But you may be reluctant to make the hanger change because you do not want to have to re-hang the clean clothes upon returning from the cleaners.  Ask if they would use your hangers instead of the wire ones.  More and more I like to use the Huggable Hangers from Joy Mangano.  They are super thin, attractive, and the flocking keeps items from slipping off the hanger.  

Many dry cleaners would be happy to save the cost of wire hangers and the ultra thin ones are easy for them to use.  Just offer to take the same amount of hangers into your cleaners with your dirty clothes.  If your dry cleaner is not able to accomodate, then try to return the wire hangers as you re-hang your clothes.  This will allow them to recycle, which is always a good thing to do. 

Remember, it is Get Organized Month.  So see where clutter is keeping you from getting organized and tackle it one project at a time.
